Plumbers always tell interesting tales about plumbing emergencies and disasters. Some of these tales are strange while others are hilarious. At Dr. Pipe Drain and Plumbing Services, we have experienced many such situations and believe there’s always a lesson to be learned from them. Here are some situations when you should call Hamilton plumbing experts.
Animals in drains
Animals surprise us with their ability to get in tight corners or small spaces. There are countless tales of cats squeezing into small tubes or rodents slipping through gaps under trap doors. Many cuddly creatures are found in drainage systems. We have heard tales of snakes emerging from toilets, goldfish swimming around in traps, cats or lizards getting in tanks, etc. It’s always a good idea to call experienced plumbers in Hamilton when you encounter an animal in your plumbing installations.
Fireworks in toilets
This is a classic example of a prank gone wrong. Some mischievous individuals toss lit firecrackers into toilets to startle people. This is disastrous in many ways. In most cases, firecrackers become inactive when they touche water. Sometimes, they remain lit and blow up the toilet. Never flush unlit firecrackers down your toilet either as that clogs drains and creates a fire hazard.
Children are curious and can cause plumbing disasters without knowing any better. Plumbers are frequently called to residential and commercial properties to handle the problem. One such incident happened in an Arizona casino. Professionals were called to clear a big clog in the daycare center bathroom. They discovered a small collection of toy trains stuck in the drainage pipes.
Many clients want to try DIY installations so they don’t call a plumber in Hamilton ON to help them. They read articles online and believe they can repair or install anything. Unfortunately, they’re not always successful and that can lead to plumbing disasters. For example, a DIYer got their measurements wrong while installing a sink faucet. The fixture was too far away from the sink bowl so it didn’t spray water directly into the bowl by rather on the back rim. Professionals are often called to fix faulty weeping tile installation, misaligned faucets, damaged drainage systems, etc.
